Saturday Social

Just 5 days to go until the Saturday Social – 10.30am – 12.30pm in the village hall. Lots of local produce to buy and find out more about what is going on in the villages.

There will also be the opportunity to hear about the revised NEIGHBOURHOOD WATCH SCHEME plus a chance to enjoy lovely home made cakes and refreshments.  We look forward to seeing you!

Saturday Social

The Parish Council will be hosting its Spring Saturday Social on April 20th in the village hall from 10.30am – 12.30pm. There will be a variety of local produce for sale including delicious honey, the famous farm pork pies, plants, jewellery and locally milled flours plus a Fairtrade stall. Find out what is happening in local groups and how to join, get a sneak preview of the 2013 Village Show theme and hear all about future entertainment events in the village hall.

As usual there will be refreshments and home made cakes and as entrance is free, please support this local event.

Firework Displays within the Parish

Many people enjoy the spectacle of fireworks and their use at celebrations other than on Bonfire Night, is on the increase. Following concerns raised to the Parish Council, if you are thinking of holding a firework display, please spare a thought for those neighbours whose pets or farm animals can be extremely frightened by fireworks and consider putting a note on the Parish Website and/or the village notice boards regarding planned firework displays. This will allow your neighbours to keep pets indoors or make other arrangements to keep their animals calm on the night in question.

Saturday Social

It was good to see so many parisioners attend the Saturday Social yesterday and everyone appeared to be enjoying themselves. This time the theme was ‘buy local’ and there were great produce items available – scrummy homemade buns from Jack, honey from Fiona, beautiful jewellery from Deborah, greeting cards from Rose Trading (with all profits going to the De-Fib appeal), flour from Yorkshire Organic Millers (Spaunton Bank), plants, preserves and who could forget Jennie arriving with a plate of her famous pork pies still warm, with the aroma filling the hall.

There were refreshments aplenty and thanks must go to the ladies of the WI for making so many cups of tea & coffee. The heritage display was fascinating especially those genuine mini Claxton bricks, the villages’ website was up and running, the community library was open and we found out about the 2 newest clubs – Shutterbugs and the forthcoming Knit & Natter group. Not forgetting Liz updating us on the De-Fib appeal (donations are still most welcome!) and information was available about the Village Produce Show in Sept. Finally, our very own Olympic Games Volunteer Anne White popped in to tell us about her experiences ‘down South’.
Apologies if I’ve left anything out – there was just so much going on. Thanks to everyone who made yesterday’s event such a great success.

Parish Council

The next meeting is on Monday 25 June 2012 at 7.30 p.m. in the Village Hall, Sand Hutton.

Look forward to seeing you there

Annual Parish Meeting Minutes from 21st April

You can now read the notes from the Annual Parish Meeting that was held during the Saturday Social on 21st April. They are under the Parish Council heading on the website.

The Annual Parish Meeting is a meeting for all electors to exchange ideas and the main topic this year was ‘Keeping our Village Safe and Secure’. Much of the discussion was around speeding and traffic concerns.

Earlier at the Saturday Social, PC Grant shared some of the police priorities for the area.

Did you know that the new phone number for non-emergency calls to the local police is 101? For more information have a look at the NY police website
